An Introduction to Pranayama (yogic breathing)

Nov. 12, 2017

An Introduction to PranayamaPranayama is the ancient yogic practice of controlling the breath, the source of our life force energy. The practice of pranayama enables us to release our stress, improve our concentration, and improve our overall physical and mental health.

This workshop will begin with a clear and approachable explanation of the science of breathing. We’ll then dive into practical, step-by-step explanations on the benefits and techniques for useful pranayama practices including: dirgha, ujjayi, kapalabhati, and nadi shodhana.

This workshop is open to students of ALL levels. Beginner students will receive a solid foundation in the art of pranayama, and intermediate students will learn concrete tips to advance their practice. Please note: students may sit on a cushion or a chair during this workshop.

Restorative Yoga + Yoga Nidra

Dec. 3, 2017

Restorative Yoga + Yoga NidraIn our daily lives we work very hard and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to truly rest.

Restorative yoga is a gentle practice designed to facilitate softening into rest. Participants lie in a series of poses that fully support and nurture the body through the use of bolsters, blankets, and blocks. Each pose is held for an extended period of time enabling deep tissues to ease into a passive stretch. Within each pose, students are guided through yoga nidra (yogic sleep) and mindfulness techniques to encourage healing and a balanced mind.

The workshop will include:

  • Restorative poses safe for *all* students
  • Breathing techniques
  • Yoga nidra & mindfulness techniques
  • Hands-on body realignment
  • Yummy Ayurvedic tea

Sunday, Dec. 3 | 2-4 PM | $24
